I just can't say enough good things about this Better Than Bouillon super product!
No more breaking your fingers trying to crumble up a crusty old cube ... or waiting hours for the darned thing to dissolve! I use this ready-to-go stock day in and day out. I discovered it years ago and I swear by it.
I find that a rounded tablespoon makes a good cup of stock – but it's easy to add more stock for more flavor - conversely add more water if the stock is "too tasty!" The photo shows the flavors I use on a regular basis.
The big jars are ordered and shipped direct from them directly but the smaller jars I buy when I need them at the local grocery store to save on shipping costs.
Unfortunately, they've changed "the rules" and now you can only buy the big jars at Costco. That's a shame if you're not a member ... grrr.
I'll have to go bug someone I know who may
have a membership there as the nearest store is in Orlando (2 hours away
Sometimes you don't need or want extra jars of clam base, for instance, but you surely do need the convenience of the big back-up plastic containers of the chicken base and the vegetable base stocks, IMHO.
They have a long shelf-life, so don't worry about Better than Bouillon expiring too soon. When you have opened a container, keep it in the refrigerator where it'll last for months too!
The flavors are delicious — and they have organic varieties too along with vegetarian, reduced sodium, and kosher based stocks! They also sell gravies and crock-pot seasoning mixes.
